Much of the food was a mix of Chinese and Cuban cooking 🥘 including dishes of fried rice with plantains, Cuban-style roast pork with rice and yucca and pepper steak with black beans and rice.

Our new YouTube is live! VINTAGE NYC SUBWAY RIDE & MTA TUNNEL EXPLORATION

Full video: https://youtu.be/y0_73ldRpSw 

In our VINTAGE NYC SUBWAY RIDE & MTA TUNNEL EXPLORATION, we take a ride on a vintage New York City "J" Train, R32 subway car during a huge thunderstorm with lightning strikes. The R32 subway car, at over 55 years old, was retired from service by New York City in early 2020 but recently brought back into service by the MTA. 

In addition to riding from Bushwick, Brooklyn and over the Williamsburg Bridge into Manhattan, we take a side journey showing you our past explorations of the vast underground MTA subway tunnel system in the Lower East Side. We see graffiti art along the active tracks and unused spurs including pieces by the notorious REVS, ESPO, GHOST and REAS.

Hudson. Ted’s Formal Wear on Orchard Street sold formal 🎩 clothing for men at a time when the Lower East Side was lined with discount clothing shops.

When Ted’s son, Charles Buchholz took over the shop in 2003, he changed the focus of the store and concentrated the inventory on rock T-shirts and other memorabilia from the Lower East Side’s historic connection with punk and rock and roll.
